PHI6680 Metaphysics and Epistemology Research Seminar

Outline

Each seminar will be run by a single member of staff in a two-hour block meeting once a week except reading week. We will select a sequence of 10 or 11 papers/chapters that are central to the subject area, to be discussed at the rate of one per week. Students will probably be expected to take turns in providing introductory comments at the start of the Seminar. You will then write a paper of 6-8,000 words for assessment purposes (with MA students having the option of doing two shorter papers), which could be more or less loosely related to topics in the Seminar. You will be entitled to advisory tutorials with the staff organizer on drafts of your paper.
